PART II MARITIME AREAS OF BELIZE Territorial sea 3. (1) Subject to sub-sections (2) and (3) of this Section, the territorial sea of Belize comprises those areas of the sea having, as their inner limits, the baseline of the territorial sea and, as their outer limits, a line measured seaward from that baseline, every point of which is 12 nautical miles from the nearest point of that baseline. (2) Subject to sub-section (3) below, the territorial sea of Belize from the mouth of Sarstoon River to Ranguana Caye comprises those areas of the sea having as their inner limits the baseline of the territorial sea as measured from the features listed in the Schedule to this Act, and as their outer limits, a line measured seaward from that baseline every point of which is 3 nautical miles from the nearest point of that baseline. (3) For the avoidance of doubt it is hereby declared that the purpose of the limitation of the territorial sea from the mouth of Sarstoon River to Ranguana Caye as described in sub-section (2) above is to provide a framework for the negotiation of a definitive agreement on territorial differences with the Republic of Guatemala. Any such agreement as is referred to in above shall be put to a referendum by the electors for their approval or otherwise, and if approved by a majority vote, shall form the basis for the final delimitation of the territorial sea in the area of the sea from the mouth of Sarstoon River to Ranguana Caye. (c) In the event any such agreement fails to receive approval by a majority vote in the referendum, the delimitation of the territorial sea in the said area shall be effected on the basis of international law. (4) Except as is otherwise provided in sub-sections (2) and (3) above, wherever the equidistance line between Belize and an adjacent State is less than 12 nautical miles from the nearest point of the baseline of the territorial sea, the delimitation of the territorial sea shall, if possible, be effected by agreement between Belize and the adjacent State; but to the extent that if no such agreement is effected, that equidistance line shall constitute the outer limits of the territorial sea. Baseline of territorial sea 4. (1) Except as otherwise provided in sub-sections (2), (3) and (4) of this Section, the baseline from which the breadth of the territorial sea adjacent to Belize is measured shall be the low-water line along the coast of the mainland of Belize as well as the coasts of all islands and cayes that form part of Belize. (2) For the purposes of this Section a low-tide elevation which lies wholly or partly within the breadth of sea which would be territorial sea if all low-tide elevations were disregarded for the purpose of the measurement of the breadth thereof shall be treated as an island. (3) The baseline from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured between Ambergris Caye - SE and Sarstoon River shall consist of the series of loxodromes drawn so as to join successively, in the order in which they are there set out, points situated

4 Page 4 on the low-water line on or adjacent to the features listed in the Schedule to this Act. The provisions of sub-section (3) of this Section shall be without prejudice to the operation of paragraphs (1) and (2) of this Section in relation to any island or low-tide elevation which for the purposes of those sub-sections is treated as if it were an island, being an island or low-tide elevation which lies to seaward of the baseline specified in sub-section (3) of this Section. (4) In the case of the sea adjacent to a coast off which there are fringing reefs, the baseline from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured shall be the seaward limit of the low-water line of the fringing reefs. Where there is a break or passage through the fringing reefs referred to in sub-section (4) of this Section, the baseline from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured shall be a straight line joining the seaward entrance points of that break or passage. (5) For the purpose of delimiting the territorial sea, the outermost permanent harbour works which form an integral part of any harbour system shall be treated as forming part of the coast, but for that purpose offshore installations and artificial islands shall not be considered as permanent harbour works. Internal waters 5. The internal waters of Belize comprise any areas of water that are on the landward side of the baseline of the territorial sea. Exclusive economic zone 6. Subject to Section 7, the exclusive economic zone of Belize comprises those areas of the sea that are beyond and adjacent to the territorial sea having, as their outer limits, a line, measured seaward from the baseline of the territorial sea, every point of which is 200 nautical miles distant from the nearest point of that baseline. Delimitation of exclusive economic zone 7. (1) Wherever the equidistance line between Belize and an adjacent State is less than 200 nautical miles from the nearest point of the baseline of the territorial sea, the delimitation of the exclusive economic zone shall be effected between Belize and the adjacent State on the basis of international law in order to achieve an equitable settlement. (2) Pending the delimitation of the exclusive economic zone pursuant to sub-section (1) of this Section, the equidistance line between Belize and the adjacent State shall constitute the outer limits of the exclusive economic zone. (3) Subject to sub-section (4) of this Section, for the purpose of implementing any agreement under subsection (1) of this Section, the National Assembly may, from time to time, by Resolution supported by a two-thirds majority declare that the exclusive economic zone shall not extend to any specified area of the sea, seabed or subsoil that would otherwise be included therein by virtue of Section 6, and such resolution, while it remains in force, shall have effect notwithstanding any other provision of this Act. (4) Any agreement with the Republic of Guatemala made pursuant to sub-section (1) of this Section which provides that: Belize shall claim less than what it is otherwise entitled to claim under international law; or the exclusive economic zone of Belize shall not extend to any specified area of the sea, seabed or subsoil that would otherwise be included therein by virtue of Section 6; or (c) there shall be joint exploitation or participation within Belize's exclusive economic zone shall be subject to approval of the electors in a referendum.
